Class Description

The CNC router is a computer controlled cutting machine that makes very precise drills into wood, foam and certain plastics. It is also able to create intricate 3D carvings in similiar materials. The class will teach students to use Cut2D software and others that are compatible with the router.

Rochester Makerspace

The Rochester Makerspace is a nonprofit community workshop and art studio located near downtown at 850 St. Paul Street. We're here to encourage learning, creativity and collaboration by providing low-cost and free access to sophisticated tools, offering a wide variety of classes, and by providing opportunities for “makers,” artists and craftspersons of all kinds to meet and interact with each other.

In addition to the classes and events listed on this page we also invite to attend the following activities, which do not require registration or a ticket:


 Every Thursday Night from 6 to 9:30 PM - Weekly Community Night & Open House.

You are invited to come and use the Rochester Makerspace for free. Bring something to make or work on, help with a group project, or just come to meet other "makers" and see what we have to offer. (Sorry, but nonmembers can not use our wood or machine shops because of insurance issues.)
